It’s going to be a big year for Star Trek. Not only do we have the new TV series to look forward to, as Star Trek: Discovery finally hits our screens, but following a lengthy “living playtest” we can also get our hands on the first official Star Trek RPG in more than a decade!
If you’ve got $500 to spare, you’ll want to bag the Limited-Edition Borg Cube Boxed Set, which features:
- The 1701-D edition of the Star Trek Adventures Core Rulebook, featuring a rendered piece of art of the saucer section of the S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D on the cover.
- Four sets of 32mm-heroic scale resin figures, including The Original Series crew, Star Trek: The Next Generation crew, Klingon and Romulan sets (the first Star Trek miniature figures to be produced in 17 years!).
- Dice sets in three colours: Command Red; Operations Gold; and Sciences Blue.
- Exclusive giant Borg Edition gamesmaster screen.
- A poster map of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.
- Momentum and Threat game tokens.
- A pad of character sheets.
- A foam tray for miniatures storage.
The Star Trek Adventures Roleplaying Game will release around Gen Con in August 2017 and will be available in stores in September. Publisher Modiphius Entertainment (Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Conan, Infinity and John Carter of Mars) has also outlined a series of forthcoming game supplements.
Three Division Guides are planned: Command; Operations; and Sciences. These will give players more options for their characters and more information about how these divisions operate within Starfleet. For example, the Command Division supplement (releasing in late 2017) will unveil a slew of new starships for players to crew.
The Beta Quadrant sourcebooks – the first in a series of guides for each galactic quadrant – is also set for release early in 2018.
Fans who took part in the “living playtest” and contributed to the development of the game will be listed in the Star Trek Adventures book manifest.
The Star Trek Adventures Roleplaying Game is available for pre-order now. We’re going to boldly go and ask the bank to extend our overdraught!
